One of his teachers suggested that he join the debate club to help strengthen his public speaking skills. Andrew wanted his play performances to be top-notch so he signed up immediately. He did so well that Calvin recruited him for the chess club.
During play rehearsals, Andrew discovered that his dance moves were lacking. Naturally, he signed up for ballet lessons and karate. Then he joined the tennis team, became the school newspaper editor and began learning how to play the bagpipes. Did I mention that he also joined the French film club, started taking singing lessons and began taking Spanish classes?
To say that Andrew is busy would be a huge understatement. Will he be able to handle the pressure of being involved in so many clubs and projects? Will he ever have any time to spend with Edie?
I loved every page of this book! I can totally relate to Andrew and his super-packed schedule. This definitely takes me back to when I was in elementary school and had dance class four nights a week, piano lessons twice a week and Girl Scout meetings throughout each month. Not to mention that I was an avid member of the Science Club and was also on the Student Council.
I think that readers of every age will delight in this story. The characters are absolutely adorable and subtle adult humor is laced throughout. I feel that the theme of the story will definitely resonate with parents who are juggling a career and a family while still trying to find time for themselves.
